Bio

The Ohmz formed when five goats from a farm wandered into reggae and tea night at the local, discovered they shared a love of tea (and reggae) and decided to write some songs about that.
They now spend their time performing their own brand of upbeat and funky reggae, with ska highlights and jazz overtones.
Think if Bob Marley had covered White Stripes. Now throw in some of The Clash, and a touch of Sublime. Serve with a generous portion of warm harmonious horns.

In between festival appearances and recording EPs, they can often be found wandering their native Isle of Wight habitat, or simply enjoying a nice cup of tea.

What the press say –

“The Ohmz are just so funky, they bring a whole new meaning to the word itself. They not only deliver energy and enthusiasm, but they create such a buzzing atmosphere it’s unbelievable. The crowd cheer with happiness and begin the bending of the knees, the bobbing of the heads and the full on twist. I don’t think we could ask for anything more from these guys, they are just so precise and exciting you can’t help but move your feet, well, your whole body in fact.”

“They could start a party in a morgue… A bouncing crowd gathered stage-right and were treated to The Omhz full repertoire of original material, new song Smile a particular highlight. A new EP is in the offing and maybe even an album. Judging by what was heard it could be something very special.”

The final set of the day was by The Ohmz, they are such a fantastic feel good band, absolutely brilliant in every way and left us with a smile on our face as we went home. Nothing the Ohmz do will either harm your ears or your head, their music (including covers) is as pure as you can get and this was the perfect end to a great night. The Ohmz were the best choice to headline this very special event.

“The Ohmz are a great example of why the Isle of Wight is a musical hotbed. I love their fusion of styles and not only are they fantastic musicians but they rock the party too.. love em!
